And for as long as impeachment proceedings are delayed, we do as well.

This past week on Facebook I posted a story about the San Diego synagogue shooting and blamed Trump for having blood on his hands.

I’ll stand by those comments, and now double-up on them.

According to the Anti-Defamation League, among other entities, since Trump took office the rise of hate crimes in general, and anti-Semitic incidences in particular, have risen substantially year-to-year.

”But Trump is pro-Israel!“ you may say. “He loves the Jews!”

Bullshit. Hours after the shooting, he bragged about his crowd size and golf game following a quick obligatory comment about the San Diego tragedy. And whatever he has allegedly done in favor of Israel is a double-edged sword. We’ll get there another time.

For now, do you sincerely believe that those who attack mosques and kill Muslims are not influenced by our Muslim-phobic President? Or that those who shoot up synagogues give the slightest damn that Trump outwardly supports the Jewish people? Ditto attacks on African Americans?

This is an imbecile who discounts Nazis marching in Charlottesville, chanting “Blood and Soil,” or one telling an interviewer, “This city is run by Jewish communists and criminal niggers.” He ignores the death of Heather Heyer, and pays lip service to reporters in pathetic attempts to defend himself.

With no mention of any of the above, he again referred to Charlottesville simply as a “protest” against the removal of a Robert E. Lee statue.

Beneath the pale.

The killers Trump inspires exhibit a lack of critical thinking skills. They are far more taken and fueled by his hateful rhetoric than his pandering half-assed apologies, which mean nothing. His alpha-male anarchist image means much, much more to those who attend his “rallies.”

Meantime, GOP leadership continues to look the other way and allow Trump to have his way with our country, our laws, our democratic institutions. The San Diego synagogue shooter was 19 years old. These are the kids brought up in Trump’s America. It will get worse before it gets better.

The Democrats cry that this President has never been stopped because his party by and large has not exhibited the guts to stand up to him.

If the Democrats do not imminently begin impeachment proceedings, they’re doing the same damn thing regardless of reason.

What they have in common with the GOP is both entities are putting party first.

Fuck Donald Trump and his family. Fuck Donald Trump and his administration.

2020 beckons.
